“Do you know why the Indian rain dances always worked? Because the Indians would keep dancing until it rained”, says Sherman Alexie.
When it comes to dance, the diversity of Indian dance forms is unrivalled. The presence of numerous classical dance forms reflects the value that India and its people associate with art. From Kathak in Northern India to Bharatnatyam in Southern India, each state boasts its own form of classical dance.
But unique among all classics is Odissi. Originated in the temples of Odisha, the dance form is elegant because of its sophisticated Tribhangi posture.
The distinctive posture involves just three body parts; head, bust and the torso. It is a dance of passion and love uniting human and divine, the mundane and sublime.
